We offer a range of pony loan schemes for both adults and children.  These are aimed at clients who have learnt the basics of riding and wish to become more involved with the care side of horsemanship.  This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about horse care, improve practical and theory based skills and develop a bond with a specific horse or pony. 

Great care is taken to match the right pony to the right rider and the team at Northington are always around to provide support and give advice.

Our Level 1 and 2 loan schemes for adults and children are fully supervised by Northington Staff at all times. Suitability for each loan scheme is at the discretion of the yard, please apply by emailing northingtonstudandstables@gmail.com.

Renting “Piper”

“One of the reasons why I love loaning my once in a lifetime pony, Piper, from Northington Stables is because you get endless support from people who really know what they are doing.  If you are ever stuck or unsure of what to do with your loan pony there is always someone there to give you valuable advice. I couldn’t live without Piper as he and everybody at Northington have bought so much happiness into my life over the past months. I cannot thank them enough!”

Renting “Muffin"

“It means everything to me to loan Muffin because you have more time to be with and learn about horses.”
